The Kern River Valley Historical Society has been in operation for over 40 years. Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. To achieve these goals we have established the Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville next to the Post Office.
Display Cabinet

For October, Gwen Jackson will share her collection of advertising tins...

Most are from the 30's and 40's and you may remember some of the products. Another display that rocks our memories!

Thanks to JoAnne Johnson for sharing her “Green Utensils and Homemaking Objects.” in September.

At present, we have no volunteers for displays in January and February. Please call Linda Thurm (see your Saddlebag) if you have a collection to share.
